If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms...

Then you should get checked out for the presence of a gastric ulcer. You will need to see your doctor for a proper diagnosis.

The signs and symptoms of a gastric ulcer are almost opposite to the signs and symptoms of duodenal ulcers - the main differences are noticed in the timing and severity of the pain.
· Gastric ulcers generally cause a dull aching pain, often right after eating.
· Making a meal can often cause an increase in pain
· Eating will not relieve pain as is the case with other types of ulcers
· Indigestion and heartburn, or acid reflux
· Nagging pain in the upper abdomen area below your breastbone
· Episodes of nausea
· A noticeable loss of appetite
· Unplanned weight loss
· Another less common symptom of a gastric ulcer is that about 3 in every 10 people are woken up at night by dull ulcer pains – this usually happens 3- 4 hours after eating.
